CITB Site Management Safety Training Scheme (SMSTS) – 5 Day
If you prefer, you can arrange to have this course delivered at your own premises anywhere within the UK. For dates and prices please, contact us.
This course is designed for site managers, agents and persons who are, or are about to be, responsible for planning, organising, monitoring, controlling and administering groups of staff.
The course covers all relevant legislation and other aspects which affect safe working in the building, construction and civil engineering industries. It highlights the need for risk assessment in the workplace, the implementation of the necessary control measures, and adequate communication to sustain a health and safety culture among the workforce.
The SMSTS course is endorsed by Build UK as the standard training for all construction managers.
Aims & Objectives
To help site managers to:
- manage health and safety on site in accordance with current legal provisions, and within the context of their management
- develop an understanding of responsibilities and accountability for site health, safety and welfare
- recognise a safe site is efficient, economical and productive.
At the end of the period of training, delegates will be aware of, and able to implement or state
- all health, safety, welfare and environmental legislation which affects them during their daily work
- new guidance and industry best practice
- their duties and responsibilities with regards to health, safety, welfare and the environment.
Delegates should hold or be about to hold the role of a manager. Delegates must be competent in English at site management level.
Assessment will be by an exam paper and the completion of core exercises and a case study. The examination demonstrates to external bodies that the certificate is only awarded to successful delegates following both an assessment and examination. Delegates are expected to be interactive during the course.
In order to maintain continuity and flow, and to maximise a delegate’s comprehension and participation, the favoured method of delivery is to hold the course over five consecutive days. However, day release, comprising one or two days per week for up to a maximum of five weeks, is an acceptable alternative.
Only in extenuating circumstances should courses be run any differently to the above alternatives and permission must be granted by the Site Safety Plus department at the registration stage.
Delegates are required to attend all five sessions in accordance with the course programme (regardless of delivery method undertaken) to achieve the necessary learning objectives to qualify for the certificate.
If this is not possible, the delegate must enrol on a new course and retake the full five-day course.
